BTC/USD

At the moment, the BTC/USD quotes are consolidating. The unidirectional trend is not observed. Local support and resistance levels are 3720.00 and 3870.00, respectively. Indicators do not send accurate signals:
- The price has fixed between 50 MA and 200 MA, which are strong dynamic support and resistance levels;
- The MACD histogram is located near the 0 mark.

We recommend opening positions from the key levels.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes above the resistance level of 3870.00, the BTC/USD quotes are expected to grow. The movement is tending to 4000.00-4150.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below the mark of 3720.00, it is necessary to look for entry points to the market to open short positions. The movement target level is the demand zone of 3525.00-3450.00.

When tracking positions, one should use a trailing stop.
